Ultra wideband (UWB) radio technology has been shown to have tremendous potential to support certain Brain Computer Interface (BCI) applications. To implant UWB transmitters inside a human brain to transmit ECoG signals from the neurons in the brain (collected by bio-implantable electrodes) to stimulators residing on the spinal cord or on muscles at(More)
In the Wireless Body Area Network (WBAN), radio propagations from devices that are near or inside the human body are composite and unique contrasting with the different environments since the human body has a composite shape comprising of various tissues. Along these lines, channel models are unique in relation to the ones in alternate situations. We(More)
This poster showcases the experimental set up and the transmission characteristics of an ECog signal emitted by an implanted UWB transmitter in the human brain. We study the signal characteristics as it traverses medium like tissue fluid and blood to reach a UWB receiver, placed externally on the head.
Implantable smart biomedical devices that collects vital physiological data and transmits them wirelessly over the communication link seemed to be a sci-fi concept decade ago. But with advancements in microelectromechanical systems and circuit design techniques, today this sci-fi concept can be realized using UWB (Ultra Wideband) radio technology which has(More)
